Inverness: K's Tea Room and Hootananny Ceilidh Cafè Bar
Inverness is the Higlands capital, a little modern city, rich of museums, a Jacobite Castle, a river and shops, resturant and pubs.
We stayed at "The Alexander" , an elegant b&b along the river Ness. Mr. Nisbet welcomed us with kindness and suggested to choose every evening our menu for the breakfast. A very big breakfast: we could choose between full Scottish breakfast, salmon and scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, cups of redberry, blueberry, juices, coffee, tea and many more.
We could easily carry on with our tour until late afternoon without eating anything else!Returning to Inverness after a trip to Loch Ness, we were a bit sad because Nessie din't show up, so we went to the Victorian Arcade. This is a Victorian shop with jeweleries, gift shops, collector shops and a Tea room: K's. It's a little shop in 2 floors. All the tables have different tablecloths and pottery The waitresses wear black uniforms with white apron. You can eat fresh sadwiches, various scones stored in this pantry mouthwatering cakes, juices and, obviously, tea!I chose this perfect White Chocolate Cheesecake.
At night, after the dinner we went to the most famous pub of Inverness: The Hootananny.
Here you can drink great beers while listening to the top Scottish musicians. We attended the Sarah Macbeth show. She was amazing and we enjoyed very much the night.
61 Church Street, Inverness. IV1 1ES
